Santa Barbara Shootings Expose Violent Socialist Culture

Nypost.com reported about the recent killing spree in Santa Barbara, California:

A 22-year-old gunman killed six people in a… rampage that began with a 140-page manifesto and an apartment stabbing and ended with a crashed BMW and an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

“It all has to come to this,” Elliot Rodger stated during a nearly seven-minute “Retribution” video uploaded to YouTube on May 23. He later added: “After I’ve annihilated every single girl in the sorority house, I’ll take to the streets of Isla Vista and slay every single person I see there.”

Rodger, who died of a gunshot wound in the BMW, is the son of Hunger Games (film) director Peter Rodger. He recently was a student at Santa Barbara City College (end of nypost.com excerpt)

OK, friends, the liberals are going to blame “the gun” and the 2nd Amendment again, as they always do, but look closely and you see the truth. This kid was another Hollywood brat/psychopath who came out of the corrupt, moneyed cocoon of the left-wing entertainment industry. Meanwhile thegatewaypundit.com notes that ‘Elliot Rodger was a fan of the far left “Young Turks” YouTube Channel’.

So where was his famous director/father to do something about this maniac? Answer: His father knew nothing about his own son like most of these Hollywood goons know nothing important except how to enrich themselves and feed their egos. Here is how Wikipedia.org describes The Hunger Games:

The Hunger Games is a multimedia franchise derived from The Hunger Games trilogy, a series of books by Suzanne Collins, set in

The Hunger Games universe, a dystopian future North America where residents of different geographic regions are forced to participate in an annual televised death match called The Hunger Games. (end of Wikipedia.org excerpt)

Notice a “death match” in a “dystopian” world. And this is considered a children’s book. This is just more cheap Hollywood/media violence and negativity to ruin minds at a younger and younger age. No wonder this kid Rodger was so screwed up.

This media violence is a recurring theme in these mass killings from Columbine to Virginia Tech to Santa Barbara. Even John W. Hinckley, who tried to assassinate president Ronald Reagan in 1981, was acting out the violent film Taxi Driver. Here is an excerpt from a website called greatschools.org about The Hunger Games:

As a premise for a children’s book, it may be the most perverse ever. Each year on “Reaping Day,” kids between 12 and 18 are drafted by lottery to participate in a reality TV show that the entire dystopian world of Panem is obliged to watch. Two chosen children from each district are whisked away to the Capitol, where they’re coiffed and styled into iconic eye candy, coached toward mediagenic self-revelation, and finally dropped into an arena mined with natural disasters and scarce resources to play “the game”: killing each another. The winner? The last child alive.

The Hunger Games is just the latest triumph of blood and gore to hit the children’s literary market. In recent years, the rabid passion for zombies, vampires, and wizards has added countless rows to the growing library of (violent children’s literature). (end of greatschools.org excerpt)

Suzanne Collins is the envy of the New York publishing world with her success (she lives near New York and publishes her books there). And that success has been built on depicting violence and decay like that in The Hunger Games. This is typical of the Democrat left. They become famous and rich on relentless portrayals of brutality and rot and then say that they are gun-control pacifists who want a utopian world. What a lie. They could make decent movies and write decent books but they choose not to. They go for the big bucks associated with egregious violence and gore as they degrade our culture because they are small people with small minds. Because liberals are the truly violent people in our culture. Now here is an excerpt from Glenn Beck’s website called theblaze.com:

Police visited (Elliot Rodger) after he uploaded a series of disturbing YouTube videos. They left and he said he was thankful “all suspicion” of him was later “dropped.” (end of theblaze.com excerpt)

Again, police did nothing just as the police did nothing to stop the two Columbine killers even though one of them had posted death threats on the internet long before the killings at Columbine High School in 1999. Because even many of our police have become corrupted, co-opted or intimidated by the civil-liberties left. And remember that the Columbine killers were acting out the violent Hollywood film Natural Born Killers. Now look at this from foxnews.com

The (Santa Barbara) rampage played out largely as Rodger laid it out in his public statements, including a 140-page manifesto and a YouTube video in which he sits in the BMW he later used as a weapon in sunset light and appears to be acting out scripted lines and planned laughs.

“I’ll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you,” Rodger, the son of a Hollywood director who worked on “The Hunger Games,” says in the video posted Friday and taken down by YouTube Saturday with a message saying it violated the site’s terms of service. (end of foxnews.com excerpt)

Again, another lunatic announces publicly on the internet that he is going to kill people. Yet if we conservatives had suggested that Rodger should be investigated, questioned, restrained or possibly locked up in a mental hospital the American Civil Liberties Union and others on the hard left would say that we have no right to intervene in his “free speech” rights. This is how the Democrats nurture this culture of violence and very well may be why the cops did not act.

This is just like the FBI which had actually interviewed one of the Boston Marathon bombers before the act and done nothing about him. Or the many people who were well acquainted with the demented Colorado theater shooter James Holmes and did nothing about him. Or the crazy Virginia Tech killer who was well known on his campus and who was obsessed with an ultra-violent Korean film called OldBoy. Or the US Army that knew well about the extremism of the Islamic maniac at Ford Hood who killed 13 people in 2009 but did nothing about him for fear of being accused or “profiling a Muslim”. Then, for liberals, it always comes back to blaming the faraway National Rifle Association.

Meanwhile Obama sends the Internal Revenue Service to scrutinize peaceful, law-abiding, tax-paying Tea Partiers to make sure that they don’t participate legally in a fair and open election. This is all sickening beyond belief. Reported theblaze.com:

Rodger details throughout his manifesto that he filled a void in his life with violent video games starting at a young age. (end of theblaze.com excerpt)

Yes, violent video games, like the Newtown school killer was addicted to violent video games which are products of the entertainment industry which is controlled by liberals. But the liberals will always blame “the gun” and call for more laws. So it now will be interesting to find out how many existing gun laws Elliot Rodger violated. It is being reported that the Colorado theater shooter James Holmes violated 20 gun laws.

Friends, we don’t need more gun laws; we need to stop the violent media from destroying our nation with their relentless propaganda. These killers like Rodger become violent from what they see and experience in their environment. These sickos can be identified easily, like the Virginia Tech killer was well known as a nut.

These mass killings all had connections to violent media. This kid Elliot Rodger had a father who was intimately involved with, and surely profited handsomely from, a violent movie call The Hunger Games. So why would the kid not see violence as a viable response to his psychoses as they were the resolution in The Hunger Games? Because in fact millions of people can no longer distinguish between reality and fantasy.

Meanwhile here is foxnews.com reporting on a black teenager who shot and killed a white cab driver in Scranton, Pennsylvania because the driver would not take the route the teenager wanted:

While in police custody, Richardson (the teenager) told reporters he had killed the driver because (the cab driver) wouldn’t take his preferred route. Asked if being ripped off was reason to kill someone, Richardson replied, “To me, it is.” (end of foxnews.com excerpt)

So where does a 16-year-old get this kind of murderous attitude? From the National Rifle Association? From a conservative Christian church? From the US military? From two law-abiding parents? No, he gets it from the violent, left-wing, Democrat-controlled culture and media that his community is immersed in, and from the hate-spewing and violence-spewing rappers and racist black politicians like Al Sharpton who rose to national prominence falsely accusing a group of white men of raping a black teenage girl.

Meanwhile Eliot Rodger’s rantings about women were pathologically violent. So where did he get his hatred of women? Answer: He got it from our sexualized culture that exploits women ruthlessly, that started with the ‘hippies’ of the 1960s. In fact some of the worst serial abusers of women in our time are prominent Democrats like former president Bill Clinton, who even was accused of rape; or Ted Kennedy who allowed Mary Jo Kophechne to drown in 1969 but then served in the US Senate for 40 years afterward; or Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose wife committed suicide because she was so despondent at being married to Kennedy, who is a notorious womanizer; or the major Obama fundraiser and big-time California Democrat Gurbaksh Chahal who was caught on videotape recently kicking his girlfriend 117 times. Meanwhile the pornographers who exploit women in the worst way give their campaign contributions 100% to Democrats.

Of course liberals say that attacks like the one in California don’t happen “in Europe where guns are controlled”. They conveniently want you to forget history, that “peaceful” Europe in the last century has had two continent-wide wars and 100 million people killed in war and murdered in genocide, while the United States has had nothing of the sort.
